Reef coral calcification depends on regulation of pH in the internal calcifying fluid in which the coral skeleton forms. However, little is known about calcifying fluid pH (pHCF) regulation, despite its importance in determining the response of corals to ocean acidification. Here, we investigate the impact of seawater dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) concentration on calcifying fluid pH in the coral Stylophora pistillata in seawater with manipulated [DIC] and constant pH. Our results reveal that regulation...
